    Then there is this from Future shop. This one has high megapixels (16.2) and 26 optical zoom.

    I sort of really like the Nikon when I think about it. Out of them all, do you think it's a good choice? I believe Nikon is a good company? I just don't know with hands on experience because we've only ever had canon's... but I sort of don't want a canon this time. For a 20X optical zoom and 12.2 megapixel it's 300$! I feel they make it so high because of the brand name. And before we bought our horrible 7.1 megapixel 3.5X optical zoom (thank goodness for technology advancements!), we had an expensive fancy canon that took really amazing pictures. My parents paid a fortune for it and it was worth it, but after 4 years it broke... and we didn't even drop it. We were always very careful with it. :/

    So I sort of want to try something new. ;)

    I have a fuji XP 20 waterproof, I must say I am less than impressed with the picture quality. Sturdy shock and waterproof so I like it in my saddle bags but not great pics. My GF bought almost the exact same camera except not waterproof and it does great. I think the plastic cover over the lens isnt perfectly clear. Shoulda bought the Olympus or Cannon. I have alwasy been happy with cannon products.

    Be weary of thinking you can get a high MP camera for Lowpriced, don't be thrown by the whole 10 megapixel deal, my Nikon D200 is only 10 MP but I can blow up a photo to billboard side and it is perfectly clear.

    Is there anyway you can search around on Ebay?
    This is the one I recommended, yes it's used but i've bought my used camera off of Ebay, and ebay does a good job of protecting you if its not what it was a described. Plus I bought mine for 600 and this one is 180!!

    I have no problem with Ebay, but my parents are really skeptical about it. They don't trust it (sigh). And it would be hard to convince them. :(

    My parents were the same way, but I showed them all the research I did into the seller, and how ebay cover's your hide when it comes to faulty sell.

    Ya I know what you mean, but my parents don't "listen". I'll try to speak to them, but I'm afraid my mom will just complain and say: why can't we just buy one in the store?

    Any good arguments I can tell them about why I should buy this camera and not another?

    Just so I perfectly understand, I should be "skeptical", on "guard" if a camera is low priced and has high MP?

    And for the 10 MP comment, I thought the more megapixel you had, the better quality the picture was? 101 on camera please?

    That is true, the higher MPs the better, however you have to take in lens quality. Like someone stated above if you have a lens that is really thick or any of the sort, then there is lower quality, I wouldn't recommend the D200 if your wanting something cheaper and easy, as its a DSLR and you have to buy lens, DSLR's are only as good as your lens, same as any other camera,

    But with any camera there is always exceptions, there may be some emmaculant cameras with higher MP's but it's hard to notice that much of a difference, if you can buy a camera with 12 MP's for 200$ and then there is another for 16 MPs for 300$ I honestly don't think you will see that much difference in photo quality. But I have been known to be wrong before haha

    Ahh I understand. Ok right, lense quality. But the Nikon Nikon COOLPIX 16.1MP 26X Optical Zoom Digital Camera (L810) - Black : Extended Zoom Cameras - Future Shop
    Isn't a DSLR, is it? I thought it was compact.
